    "Both of my children attended MCH from the time they were 1 and 2 years old. The staff is phenomal--so caring, dedicated and clear with their program. Both of my chilren were excited to go to school everyday and the staff was always just as happy about being there to enjoy the children. The children learned so many life skills with gentle guidance and a head start on a wonderful education. This school is perfect for families committed to quality care for their children."

    "My youngest child attended MCH from the time he was 3 months old. I love the staff, the atmosphere and curriculum. He enjoyed every day he was at MCH ... the infant care staff treated him like gold and he loved them, too. Preschool taught him important lessons in manners and courtesy. They introduced him to potty training, academics in a fun and gentle way! Once he went to the Main Campus, their great standards continued and my son got a first-rate education! This year he entered 1st grade at age 5 in LBUSD and is thriving in his studies that he deems "easy", mostly in part to MCH's rigorous curriculum. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for quality education and care for their child. Thank you so much, MCH Staff ((HUGS))"

    "My daughter has been attending Montessori since preschool and is now first grade. Our home school is Minnie Gant but we decided to let our daughter continue attending Montessori since she is thriving academically. She loves to go to school in the morning and always asks if she can stay a little longer when we pick her up. I love the small nurturing environment(only 19 kids in her class). My daughter just loves her teacher, Mrs Khema. Very happy parent!"

    "To clarify: there are three campuses that compromise this program. Palo Verde, for babies trough potty trained children. West for children 3-5 who are fully potty trained, and Main, for children 3- 3rd (?) grade. My child spent a year at the Palo Verde campus, and I agree with some of the harsh reviews below. I think it is a poorly lead program, the parent-teacher communication is terrible, and I regret leaving my child in it for a full year. That said, she "graduated" to the West campus, and I could not be happier. I think their programs are spectacular, and that they do an excellent job following the Montessori method. My child LOVES to go to school, and I feel confident in the abilities of the teachers and assistants. In addition to a standard child-led Montessori based cirriculum, the kids get lots of outside time. 5 stars for West."

    "I toured this Palo Verde Ave school in Aug 2010 for the 2-3 yr old age group. The teacher told me she had 24 toddlers aged 2-3 in her class and was the only teacher, w/2 aides who appeared to speak little English. From the time we started the tour to the end of the tour 10 mins later, the children looked bored, were ALL silent, and sitting at 2 tables in the SMALL room, totally unengaged holding different books no one was reading to them. Very few items to play with in class, and I was told they were not allowed outside the entire day due to the 80 degree weather. Offices unrelated to the school were on the floor above, with strangers going in and out of the playground to access their front doors...a risk to the children at all hours of the day. No thanks."
